Two New Species of Megalomma (Sabellidae) from Sinai and New Zealand with Redescriptions of some types and a New Genus
Type specimens of Megalomma species are compared. Megalomma intermedium (Beddard) becomes a senior synonym of M. hypsilophum (Ehlers) and M. monophthalma (Augener). This species is transferred to a new genus but Sabella palmata Quatrefages has priority. Sabella pacifici Grube, Sabella modesta Quatrefages and Patamilla bioculata Hartmann-Schröder are transferred to Megalomma. The latter thus becomes a junior homonym of Megalomma bioculatum (Ehlers), and is renamed. These, Megalommo acrophthalmos (Grube) and M. coloratum (Chamberlin) are figured, and two new species of Megalomma from Sinai and New Zealand are described.
